Jimmy emailed me this morning and mentioned that his Mum was woken by the explosion, she lives in Bushey which is south(ish) of Watford. Jimmy claims he only didn't hear it because he'd been drinking heavily the night before!
BTW I've been meaning to say this for a while. I love what you've done with your journal!! Very stylish!
I'm surprised you take the hellish M25 in the morning :) No cool ratruns from there? :) I guess that strech of the M25 isn't too bad in that direction in the morning, but the M4/M25 junction must be a bit of a nightmare!
